Col di Rocca

PROSECCO ROSÈ DOC

Prosecco Rosé

Until 2020 producers weren't allowed to label “rosé” any Prosecco made in pink. The labelling laws finally changed, and La Mia Italia is thrilled to be stocking a fine example of rosé Prosecco. Col di Rocca makes this pink prosecco working to the same high standards as the traditional white Prosecco.

The main grape are Glera with a brush of Pinot Noir (the only red grape variety allowed) that lends a soft pink hue and some vibrant berry notes. The bubbles are fine fresh and zesty, with notes of redcurrants and raspberries, and a lovely floral quality. There’s an abundance of citrus and fresh strawberries notes. According to Italian law, the wine used in this Prosecco comes from one single harvest hence the Prosecco Rose Col di Rocca is a vintage Prosecco (“millesimato”).

This is a lovely fizz perfect for pairing with canapés before the main event. It’s extremely versatile though, working well with chunks of parmesan, cured meat and sushi. Why not also try with strawberry-based desserts?

The vineyards are planted on highly calcareous soils, with marls mingled with conglomerates and gravels. The Vines are trained with the Guyot and the Sylvoz training system.

The grapes are carefully selected and manually harvested. The wine is made according to the Charmat method with controlled temperature fermentation at 16-17° C for 60-70 days.
